When you say you cut some off do you mean in the length of the felt or the thickness of the felt?I just put one in my Super C and on the thickness it stuck up over the top of the groove maybe an 1/8 of an inch. But on length it was way to long and the instructions that came with it said it might be and just to cut off the ends.

I just cut off a little on the ends not the width. I still had to force it down over the crank and bolt it up.

I did my Faramall H and 300 I had to cut some off there was no way I could get it all in there. The felt seal came from a Felpro gasket set. No leaks at all.

Do not cut off "just a little" because someone did not make it the right size. Don't ask why I know. (The seeping should tell) Force it in the best way you can. G.
